Alzner-Green

Varlamov
Neuvirth

With countless prospects or current players who we drafted filling in the possible question marks, to say nothing of possible free agents or trades. All but Laich (edit: and Steckel) that I typed out was drafted. GMGM deserves a lot of credit, it hasn't been all Ovie. Backstrom. Semin. Alzner. Green. He's done a good job the last few years. Patience. It's gonna be a hell of team. Just not yet.
What a difference two years makes.

"Most successful" isn't a binary term. There has to be a most successful coach, regardless of whether or not you define success as a Cup or not.
